Praise Where Praise is Due
It`s never nice to be beaten at home, especially by a side that we know we should have beaten.
But then again it takes a special kind of person to recognize that the opposition have achieved something special in beating us and that, amongst many others in our division, we remain the team to beat.
Therefore, I`ll not begrudge the former West Ham midfield star and now manager of Braintree Town, Alan Devonshire, his few words acknowledging his sides achievement in coming to the home of football and masterminding a shock win.
This what the former West Ham star had to say after the game,
"We should enjoy this occasion, it`s probably the best result in Braintree`s history. I`d imagine."
"We came here to enjoy it, no-one expected us to get a result here, and we`ve ended up winning."
"We`ve been positive - you`ve seen our defending, so we have to attack to win games."
"I thought we fully deserved the win, it`s a great result for us, hopefully we can kick on now."
As for us, we need to re-group and get back to winning ways, this Saturday, against Nuneaton whilst also hoping that Braintree Town can do to our promotion rivals what they did to us!
